The World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) Hard Rock Tulsa Main Event boasted of a cool $1 Million guaranteed in prize money and the advertised guarantee was crushed with a total of 721 entrants joining in on the action, generating a prize pool of $1,081,500. Jonathan Poche (cover image) defeated Chad Smith heads-up to lift the trophy and his second career WSOPC ring.

Poche collected the top prize worth $216,307 and his second WSOPC ring nearly seven years after he won his first ring at WSOP Circuit New Orleans for $121,017. After this win, his poker resume now shows over $650,000 in live cashes.

The event witnessed a number of notables in attendance and many among them made it in the money with the list including the likes of all-time rings leader Maurice Hawkins, Ravi Raghavan Byron Abernathy, Tommy Vedes, Jeff Banghart, and Will Berry.


Final Table Recap

Charlie Adkins started the final table in the lead and first busted Mo Khan with kings over the sixes of the latter. Matthew Colvin followed Khan to the rail in eighth place.

Poche got lucky after he shoved holding card 1card 1 and got the call from Mike Horchoff who woke up with card 3card 1. Poche rivered a six-pair to eliminate Horchoff at seventh place.

Charlie Adkins couldn’t extend his chip lead and was relegated to the rails by Chad Smith.

Jeff Fielder was the next to fall after he lost big pots to slide down to under 10 big blinds and shoved with queen-jack that just couldn`t sustain against Simth’s ace-ten.

While Poche had more than half of the chips in play, Josh Turner got short and shoved with card 3card 3. Mashir Khan looked him up with a call, tabling card 2card 3 and won.

Down to three players, Smith’s pocket kings prevailed over Mashir Khan’s card 3card 3 and with that, the heads-up finale between Smith and Poche began with the former in the lead.

Poche truly dominated Smith as he collected almost every significant pot heads-up and soon ended it all. The last hand of the event saw Poche hitting three-of-a-kind deuces holding card 2card 2 and Smith hero-called Poche’s all-in with ace-king for high card to settle for a runner-up finish.
